As any parent knows, getting kids ready for school in the morning can be a struggle. Especially if the girls want their hair done a certain way. Nikki Grim from Atomic Hair Salon gave free lessons to the dads. They covered how to braid hair, do a messy bun or even a French Twist. And the dads then got to practice these new styles on their daughters. Many of the dads here say they never learned how to do hairstyles like braiding before.
Police are reminding people to lock up their cars and be vigilant. Anne Woodward says she was returning to her car after the game when she saw the window smashed out of the car next to hers. At first, she was just glad her car wasn't vandalized. And it wasn't until a couple hours later that she realized her purse was gone. "Once I got home I reached into the backseat for my purse and I realized my purse was gone,” Woodward said. She immediately checked her bank account.
On Monday, To The Rescue partnered with Belle's Basix to throw a disco themed dance. To The Rescue wants people living with disabilities to get out in their community more often. People living in group homes around Cedar Rapids were encouraged to come dance the night away. At first, several people were shy to get on the dance floor. But after a few songs the group wouldn't stop dancing. "Being here dancing with the girls," Timothy Cook said. "This is my first time here," Mollie Chester said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
